Good morning everyone, only a few days left for the Christmas in July event.

(see yesterday's post for yesterday's winner)

Today I'll be giving away a gift certificate to The Wild Rose Press.

this weekend I got stuck watching the Halmark channel. the Love Comes Softly saga was on and I found myself watching one after another and not getting much of anything else done. Confession two- I love the Little House on the Prairie series. And Anne of Green Gables. Oh hello- I'm sharing my dirty little secrets. lol

I balance it with a love for action/adventure. Like the Bourne Movies and X-Men Movies.

so for my question.
If you could travel back in time, which era would you visit and why?

The perils of having multiple tabs open at the same time, I posted in the wrong blog. Strange you can delete but not edit.

Anyhow. Which era? Preferably no people around so I'd prefer to go back to prehistoric times. Maybe Ancient Greece or Atlantis if it ever existed.

Oh how fun! I've always wanted to visit ancient China or Japan, but only for a limited time! I wouldn't want to live without modern conveniences forever! (Or even for more than a few days, probably! ;))

Probably sometime during the Renaissance period, but only if I could be royalty. Ugh, have you seen the way the streets and city markets are portrayed for that time, filth everywhere and human waste.

I love Anne of Green Gables too along with Anne of Avonlea. Have you seen the continuing story? I was a bit disappointed in it. I guess it was too serious.

I would like to visit Hellenistic Egypt, because it had such a diverse population and I'd love to see the famous Library at Alexandria. But I do like my modern conveniences, and it would be really awful to be trapped in the past without my glasses or contacts!

Oh I love watching the earlier shows. Little House is one of my favorites to watch. I loved the books too! I never tho saw any shows on Anne Of Green Gable. I keep meaning to read up on that and maybe I'll become familiar with it again.

I do love the Regency era. That time with all the balls, the dressing, dancing along with being fascinated about the society rules then and all.

I would love to travel back to Ancient Egypt and Rome to witness the political intrigue and the scheming between family members for power.

I would love to visit Regency England. I love reading books based in that time period.

Jeanette J said...

I would like to visit the Viking period to see how my ancestors lived

I would visit anywhere in The Old West. I love cowboys and both men's and women's clothing in that time period.

I would love to see the Americas before Europeans arrived or possibly ancient Egyptian times...

I am silly, but I would love to visit the time of the dinosaurs...mainly to see how close we are to what they were. =)

I would love to go back to the time when there were knights, but of course, I would want to be the daughter of a very high ranking noble. LOL Hey, it's a fantasy! Don't want to be common folk.

Ancient England, I'd love to have seen the castles in their glory days.

Hugs, Danette
